Dubai Dunes - Photos and Video

Just received an image from today's Al Awir, Lahab, Fossil Rock Triangle ride I though worth sharing.

Cool. I have been to Saudi Arabia but not Dubai. The sand was blindingly white near Jubail.

It's very white here close to the coast and it's difficult to see definition in the dunes once the sun is high in the sky. The red sand around Fossil rock is much easier to see in and there ore easier to ride despite the dunes being much bigger

Apparently the difference is the coastal sand is mainly coral so hence white, whereas inland there is a much higher iron content making it red

I was always near the Persian Gulf while in Saudi Arabia. I would have liked to travel more inland but the opportunity never arrived.

Talking

I've changed the title of the thread to "Dubai Dunes - Photos and video" so I can use it to put all media into one thread.

here is a video I posted to facebook earlier today








Group lead by James West of Gas Gas Tours going from their yard to the Sevens ground for breakfast.

Awesome ride. Great lines from James, fun group of people to ride with and I can feel myself improving. Found plenty of flow
